A Possible Answer...

Monday, June 13, 2011

You have to be content and satisfied with your performance...your output. You have to realize you are giving 100% effort towards your dreams and your goals. There is no room for weakness or excuses. If you have that burn, and you really want to achieve, no one can stop you. You just do it! Give no matter to the time of the journey. It's a lifetime.

When you are at that point, and it takes a while to get there, then you truly project positive waves. People around you will feel it. They see you walk it. They will know you are living it and they will be inspired.

I've heard this before, You have to learn to love yourself, before you can love someone else. If you know you are giving it your all, it becomes a lot easier.

Sunday Notes.

Sunday, June 12, 2011

Had a great weekend with Dssecrets. It was like being on vacation yet we were close to home.

I've got some busy times with errands, cooking and such at home this week but I'm ready for them. It's all about pacing yourself.

I'll be interested to see where my weight goes this week. I'm in my goal window and am working the revised plan now. It's all about the journey and I'm excited.

One last trivial note...I keep hearing Southern Cross as done by Jimmy Buffett. I heard it live when he opened the 2011 Tour in Tampa. I loved it by CSN,&Y and because Jimmy loves the ocean, I love when he does it now. Great song!

Y'all have a healthy week!

Building a New Burn!

Saturday, June 11, 2011

I'm starting to slow down my gain as I am moving up to my 170 target weight. I had gone down to 159.5 while in the hospital. At 6 ft., I want to keep that 34 inch waist! Now it's a matter of building muscle. I need to learn that and maintaining a solid daily calorie intake. I know it will be a process but I will do it.

So tonight, I went through the blogs and SparkPages of "At Goal and Maintaining" Teammates! Man, what a bunch of winners! It was the best thing I could have done this evening. I read their stories of their journeys to this point and it was real! I felt so good for all of them. It inspired me and sparked me into this next level. I am humbled to be among them. I always tell SP members to get involved in these communities. Do it all. You become wiser and stronger in the process. But I have to thank all the AG&M Team for giving me the flame going into this new part of the journey. I am so ready to rock!

X-Men, Fat Fish, and ST!

Friday, June 10, 2011

Got up this morning and went to my regular cafe to see friends and have breakfast. Ended up going to a noon movie to see X-Men with one of them. Found out he was a movie freak so I guess we'll be doing flicks from time to time. Cool. You know you gotta have friends.

D and I went to dinner at a seafood place we wanted to try. We're so lucky to have fresh fish down here on the Gulf. After I had logged my food, I found that catfish had way too much fat content. Don't need that. I checked out a table online that showed exactly that. Lowest in fat? 1 to 4 grams...
Cod, Flounder, Haddock, Halibut, Pike, Rainbow Trout, Red Snapper, Rockfish, Smelt, and Tuna. Highest on the table was Mackerel 18 grams! Just wanted to share.

Got home after dinner, took a break then knocked out my new strength training I put together. I'm really happy with it as I do it 3 days a week and it's overall body. We'll see how it goes. I'm always ready to tweek the plan if needed.

Be safe. Enjoy a healthy weekend. Out.

It's an Errands Day

Thursday, June 09, 2011

Ran around today, shopping for new pillow case covers for my new king down pillows. They are always a cool temp, much firmer, and good for side sleepers. I need a good night's sleep. I also had to replace a pool chaise pillow. Yes, life is tough. I also stopped at Sears to inquire about a possible repair on my car. ..$265 I went to my local auto shop . ..$65! Sweet!


I had stopped earlier at Autozone to get replacement headlight and fog light bulbs. They installed them for nada! Sears wanted $25. Came home, comfort dinner was pizza, then we did our walk. My pace was better and I liked that. Oh, I'm up to 166.2 now. I'm going to have to pay attention to change. The shower was good and I'm relaxing for the evening! Have a peaceful night!
